Chicken sausages

  • 25
  • Share

Hello all,

I'm having the hardest time finding "regular" chicken sausages.
My preferred brand is Lilydale (http://www.lilydale.com/products/cate...), but they don't seem to sell that brand at any grocery store in Quebec! I've been to a few boucheries with no luck. Finally I tried Atwater Market, where one place had them -- 2 sausages for $4.60! I'm not looking for gourmet, organic, or otherwise "fancy" sausages. I just want regular sausages made with chicken instead of beef, pork or veal.

Can anyone help me?

  1. Costco carries a few brands. Last time I was there they had turkey and chicken hot Italian sausages and I think sun dried tomato chicken sausages.

      Costco carries Lilydale products.

      1. re: hungryann

        Do you like them? I've never had them. Plain is fine, as long as they aren't loaded with chemicals.

        1. re: hungryann

          I knew Costco carries Lilydale out west, but I didn't think they did out east. I can't say as I have ever looked for them, so I could easily be wrong.

          They carry a large selection of all kinds of sausages, so I hope Chriama finds something they really like.

      2. Well, I've bought chicken sausages for far cheaper than you say, but they were at Milano - 9,90 per kilo and at Al Khair, a Halal butcher's and supermarket, also near Jean-Talon Market. I've never seen Lilydale here.

        The map at the Lilydale site says that in Québec they are available at Sobey's, which is IGA here, and I've never seen them there, though an IGA is the closest "regular" supermarket to my house.

          +1 for Al Khair's merguez-style chicken sausage...

          1. re: sir_jiffy

            Al Khair's sausages and meats in general are very good and good value, and they have a sale on many items now during Ramadan, including lamb shoulder and gigot (sliced and as roasts). They are much more careful about cut and presentation than many other Maghrebi and Middle Eastern places, and do good marinated products too.

            I buy their chicken sausage often - it isn't expensive at all, nor overly spiced. By the way, their chicken legs, $2 a kg, are very good indeed.

          2. re: lagatta

            I've been to 3 different IGAs and have never found the Lilydale products. I used to get them from Superstore in Calgary so I checked out Loblaws too, but nothing. I'm hopeful that Costco has them

            1. re: Chriama

              Do you still need a membership there? It isn't worth my while if you do, as I don't buy in bulk beyond walking distance, and while the Costco in Marché central is not far at all from my abode, it would be a long walk.

              I've never seen them at Loblaws, Maxi or Provigo.

              1. re: lagatta

                You do, but my mom is sending me a gift card in the mail ;)
                Anyone, member or not, can use a Costco cash card, but you do have to be a member to buy it.

          3. We always get our chicken sausages from Chez Vito on Fairmount. Nothing fancy and we like them a lot. Hope this helps!

              It's a little far from where I live in Verdun, but if I find myself on that side of town I'll make sure to stop by and have a look. How much do they cost, and what flavour are they?

            2. Adonis also has some chicken sausages for sale. The chicken merguez are yummy too!

              1. re: lawyergirl77

                PA has chicken merguez as well

                1. re: catroast

                  Do they really? I shop at the one on Fort fairly often and I haven't seen it. Is it with all the other sausages and fresh meats?

              2. Thanks for all the suggestions! I'm going to check out Al Khair this weekend and report back

                1. I also like the chicken merguez from Adonis, and also the chicken sausages from the poultry shop Fernando on Roy. If you find any chicken chorizo, let me know. That's a new quest of my own.

                  1. re: Plateaumaman

                    Adonis seems highly recommended, but it's too far from where I live. There's a new one opening on St. Catherine near Atwater, so hopefully I can enjoy their selection soon.

                    1. re: Chriama

                      i haven't heard this mentioned but loblaws/provigo has 2 types of house brand chicken sausage at the butcher's counter. i get it all the time.

                      1. re: catroast

                        Personally I don't like the Loblaws house brand chicken sausage (dairy and other fillers) but that is just my opinion, not food gospel. I've rarely seen chicken merguez at PA (I almost always go to the Parc location, and have never yet been to the Laval one).

                        1. re: lagatta

                          ok contrarian. the PA on fort has chicken merguez.

                          1. re: catroast

                            I'm not a contrarian! I've only been to the Fort PA twice; obviously I live much, much closer to the Parc location. I can walk there, and do, in the winter. I was at the west end one only when working nearby...

                            And the Loblaws sausages are nothing more than my personal opinion; I'm sure they are perfectly fine.

                            1. re: lagatta

                              I don't think there is a PA in the west end, unless you are referring to the Fort location, which is decidedly in the centre of town. Or have they opened one in the West End?

                              1. re: williej

                                I guess that depends on where you live. The west end of the city centre, I guess. For me, anything past Guy is definitely far west!

                  2. bumping this to see if anyone has seen Lilydale sausages in Montreal? In particular, turkey breakfast sausage.
